New Font – Celest


We have released a new font called “Celest” and it was designed by one of Go Media’s newest designers Katie Major. She’s actually been working for us for about a month now and doing very well!

She describes this font as “a new concept in human communication conceived through this typeface. It is a speculation as to how we will need to interact with each other as our reach stretches further into the galaxy. For centuries we have looked to the stars for answers. Inspired from ancient constellations, Celest is the manifestation of evolved communication.”
